Portland’s Peacock Lane Tradition Continues

Since the 1920s, each house in this quaint southeast neighborhood has been decorating for Christmas. Mostly Tudors, the houses are adorned with not only beautiful sparkling lights, but also nativity scenes, rotating Christmas trees and stunningly life-like replicas of Santa and Frosty.

Be forewarned: this is a very popular Portland tradition and the crowds can get quite thick. It is wise to park several blocks away and walk, rather than drive through the area. Better yet, take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage.

Don’t forget – December 15 & 16 are “Pedestrian-only” nights, no vehicles are allowed.

Happy Holidays from all of us on Peacock Lane!

Where is Peacock Lane?
Peacock Lane is between SE Stark St. and SE Belmont St. and one block east of SE 39th. The best way to see the lights is on foot. Park somewhere in the neighborhood and enjoy a stroll down the Lane.

Cocoa Booth
Residents will again be staffing a free cocoa booth on the lane during lighting hours. Donations of cash and canned goods will be accepted at the cocoa booth and donated to charity.

Take the bus to Peacock Lane.
To reduce traffic congestion for our Southeast area neighbors (who often have trouble getting home and parking during the lights display) and long car waits to turn onto Peacock Lane, visitors to Portland’s Christmas Street are strongly encouraged to find free street parking several blocks away and walk or utilize public transportation if possible. TriMet buses 15 (SE Belmont) and 75 (SE Cesar E. Chavez / 39th Ave) have stops within a block of Peacock Lane. For those coming from greater distances, please consider carpooling or using TriMet’s Trip Planner web site to find your best route for public transportation or park-and-ride options.

Please do not park in the Walgreen’s parking lot.
If you’re driving, please beware of heavy traffic, and limited access to the street by moving vehicles. Coming from the West, or downtown, enter Peacock Lane going South via Stark Street. Coming from the East, take Belmont Street to Peacock Lane and go North up the Lane.
